Making your UCAS application stand out & UCAS Clearing advice if you need it

Applications are competitive. Students need to stand out from the crowd and make the admissions tutor want to offer you a place, rather than another student. A strong, appropriate academic profile and an irresistible personal profile are the key to success.

Our expert team will provide you with in-depth and personalised advice tailored specifically to you, get in touch today

How to stand out

Sometimes parents and teenagers, in tandem with support from their school, feel they can handle most of the UCAS application themselves. However, it is usually writing the personal statement draft and proof reading it, which presents the biggest challenge. Schools do a great job with this, but often with 100’s of students that need UCAS application advice in each academic cohort, access to a great deal of time for your teenager is perhaps unrealistic. Working in tandem with the school to give your teenager a head-start is where our team of consultants can make a real impact.

For this reason, our personal statement framework and review of draft service offers access to UCAS application advice from one of our consultants with just this element of the application. Whatever your choice of course or university preferences, this can be a very cost-effective solution to the writer’s block which often occurs when writing personal statements. In this way parents can secure UCAS application advice from one of our consultants, in a very targeted and specific way.
